 RAW's Cobra Kit Car   






I've recently finished building a Cobra kit car. The kit I chose to use was from RUCC (RU Car Crafters where "RU" is Roger Upton). They build a backbone chassis 427SC kit. I dropped in a 428SCJ. I built two separate "kits" - the drive train, which included the 428SCJ and a toploader transmission, and the Cobra itself. I've not yet found another site detailing the RUCC kit, so I hope to do what others have done for Factory Five and Lone Star kits - give a detailed blow-by-blow diary of the construction. I've taken a trip to visit RUCC and have a page dedicated to that visit with some details of the RUCC operation. Enjoy your visit.
